Since from last 4 years I’m living in Malaysia, I have something about immigration visa permit procedure and normally it’s very difficult to know without hiring an agent/consultant. In this tutorial, I gonna share some useful stuff which will help the foreigners living in Malaysia.
The common question everyone will ask how to check Permit Status Online. In past Malaysian immigration do provide a service to check the Permit Status using Passport number of foreigner worker but in 2014 while they were updating the system they stop the service to check permit status through Passport number.

Nowadays if someone wishes to check the status of their work permit they must have “Application Number (Nombor Permohonan), Employer Identification Number (No. Kad Pengenalan Majikan) and last but not least Company Registration Number (No. Pendaftaran Syarikat)” Formally known as ROC Number in Peninsular Malaysia. I will also share the way how to find out the ROC to check your permit/employment pass status.
To do so, we must have the Company Name which you can find on your sticker (PLKS) you have placed on your Passport or if you don’t have the passport you may have I-Kad, you can grab it from your I-Kad or in most cases from your permit copy provided by employer or sub-agent.
So now if you got the name of your company, let’s start to check the status. Keep note that in this tutorial we will only learn how to check the status general work permit, which is issued under these 5 approved sectors.

Construction, Manufacturing, Plantation, Agriculture and Service Sector

  • http://www.mydata-ssm.com.my
  • Write your company in the search box and you will get the result something like this:


  • In the row of Number is your company ROC number (There are chances to have the duplicate company registered under the same name but ROC can’t be same. Make sure by checking the company on your Sticker (PLKS), & also make sure that your company is Enterprise or Private Limited (SDN BHD).

Now we have the ROC Number Let’s Proceed To Next Step

  • Go to the following link of Immigration e-services.
  • https://eservices.imi.gov.my/myimms/PRAStatus?type=36&lang=en
  • The page should look something like this (if it’s not same let us know we will update the screen shot)


  • Now just put your ROC number into the input (No. Pendaftaran Syarikat or Company Registration Number) & click on search button & system will the table of result just below the input section. That’s it..!!
Note that there may be more than one row/page of results (If your company hired more than 20 foreigner workers, you can use navigation button at the right bottom corner of the table to navigate your status.

There are lot of social sharing plugins already shared on the web, i have seen social sharing buttons while i was reading article on Google's website Think With Google, i was really inspired with functionality of that plugin. Since i'm not frontend developer, i have found a great framework materialize to develop that social sharing button as i seen on Google's Website. The Looks great on desktop as well as a pretty good use on smartphones.

Check out the demo below pen on codepen.

See the Pen Fab Social Share Button by Mohammad Ishtiaq (@Mybloggertricks) on CodePen.

I will show the basic work of the plugin you have to put it to work at your own :)

Note that you have to import jQuery before importing materialize.js! Generally it is good option to import javascript files at the end of the body to reduce page load time.

1. The Basic HTML Markup something like this.
 <!DOCTYPE html>
  <html>
    <head>
      <!-- FontAwesome-->
      <link href='https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.5.0/css/font-awesome.min.css' rel='stylesheet'/>
      <!--materialize.css-->
      <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/materialize/0.98.2/css/materialize.min.css"  media="screen,projection"/>
      <!-- optimized for mobile-->
      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"/>
    </head>
    <body>
      <!-- Jquery & materialize.js-->
      <script type="text/javascript" src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.1.1.min.js"></script>
      <script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/materialize/0.98.2/js/materialize.min.js"></script>
    </body>
  </html>

2. The HTML markup FAB Sharing Buttons would be something like this:

<div class="fixed-action-btn click-to-toggle">
    <a class="btn-floating btn-large cyan">
      <i class="fa fa-share-alt" aria-hidden="true"></i>
    </a>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#" class="btn-floating white"><i style="color: red;" class="fa fa-facebook" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></li>
      <li><a href="" class="btn-floating white"><i style="color: red;" class="fa fa-twitter" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></li>
      <li><a href="#" class="btn-floating white"><i style="color: red;" class="fa fa-pinterest" aria-hidden="true"></i>
</a></li>
      <li><a href="#"class="btn-floating white"><i style="color: red;" class="fa fa-google-plus" aria-hidden="true"></i></a></li>
    </ul>
  </div>

You can customize the look and feel of the buttons by playing with CSS , In case of any error during installation (in the code above) of the script or having trouble while editing, please don't hesitate to let us know, we will do the job free (it will just cost you one smile for us). Peace and blessing bodies..!!

We hope you have enjoyed the above plugin! If you feel Materialize has helped you out and want to about the framework just visit official website.
